First of all, this fact would be new to me, furthermore this would be a highly 
volatile categorization. Should URLs change when a package suddenly gets into 
or was thrown out of boot-/extra-packages? I don't think so. The fact what is 
shipped and what not is explicit in the ghc/libraries/{boot,extra}-libraries, 
not in the structure of darcs.haskell.org. Packages which are hosted there 
should be below, well, "packages". The toplevel directory is currently a bit 
crowded and unstructured...
